the election, you've got a 20-day vacation that's going to cost the taxpayers millions going to hawaii, and yet people are without homes and power, and families are getting kicked out of hotels, lanny davis. where is this ever-loving government that's supposed to take care of everybody? >> well, first of all, the tragedy of what those people are going through, they need more help. >> where is it? where is the president that came up the week before the election? where is he? >> well, he should be doing more. i agree with that. >> he should be. >> the people of new jersey saw what he did for them, and the governor of new jersey, a republican, was grateful for what he did, but it hasn't been a perfect performance. >> that was week one in the middle of the cleax. >> we're a month after the election. we need to do more for those poor people. i would point out to you that your double standard about taking vacations when it was republican presidents, i never heard you criticize the expensive republican vacations. >> patrick j. buchanan. >> i happen to like george bush. i never criticized him for takin

, right? where else would it go? >> university of hawaii has been openly campaigning for it for years. >> bill: oh, really? i hadn't thought about that. kenya? no. >> don't think that will happen. >> bill: but he taught at the university of chicago. >> there is a lot of family connections there. >> bill: he did not attend the university of hawaii. his father did right? >> and his mother. there's ties. he lived there. you don't have to be -- most presidential libraries are affiliated with an academic institution. now, having said that, for years, the university of chicago has had a very quiet under the radar -- putting out feelers to get this. ask him about it. they get all muzzled. so this is breaking out in the open. i want to give credit. politico had a story on this saturday where they talked about how one of the people involved is susan who was mrs. obama's chief of staff. now an executive at the university of chicago. but what this -- there are so many ties to the university of chicago.

. it has a tropical connection, because it's coming from the direction of hawaii, but still a mid and northern latitude situation. seattle and portland seeing some rain, snow at the higher elevations. if anything is a saving grace, it's a little cooler this go-around, so some of the moisture getting locked up in higher elevations in the form of snow. most of that is well north of san francisco and napa valley. this will sink further south, we'll get another piece of energy later on today that will spin up across the bay area and intensify the rainfall. that's what we will be watching closely. our computer models highlight that. one pulse to the north. another one fills in further to the south. it shouldn't be nearly what we saw last week. the ground is saturated. rivers are swollen. it won't take much to get more in the way of flooding. once we get past that, we are looking at a fairly dry scenario going over the next few days. today is the day. then tomorrow we'll hopefully be breathing a sigh of relief. >>> this morning intense fighting in syria outside the city of aleppo. rebel
